Yoga Retreat

Locanda San Fantino, The Amalfi Coast & Cilento

Cilento, to the south of the bustling, preening Amalfi Coast, is one of Italy’s least explored regions, and all the better for it. There are wonderful fishing villages, hill farms and – the clincher – a ten mile stretch of coastline accessible only by boat or on foot. No wonder Conde Nast Traveller called it ‘Italy’s best kept secret.'

Locanda San Fantino is hosting the third Yoga retreat with Samanta Duggal, an established yoga teacher from India. This retreat combines yoga with breathtakingly beautiful places, great comfort, delicious and healthy food. Prices are; Euro 990 for shared room and Euro 1,390 for own room. Prices include accommodation, yoga and all meals excluding alcoholic drinks.

Valid from: 06 June 2014 - 12 June 2014
